Welcome. The last guy I met from there called it "Suckramento". Hey, I live in a sucky place too, just didn't know it before I moved here.
About the cams; I didn't know the touring cams needed to be clearanced until just now. I have the standard street cams (no machining needed) and am very happy with them. I wonder what the difference in feel is between the two.
Any machinist in your area should be able mill out whatever is needed fairly easy.
The extra hp is enough to be felt by the butt dyno I would think. Especially when pulling a hill.
Thanks for the welcome. Truth be told, I like living here pretty well. Im close enough to the mountains that I can ride my dirtbike, and if I need to go to the city (greater SF area) thats not to far either. All in, if you can stand the heat of summer, living in Sac is pretty good. Although, being from AZ, you can probably do the heat. When I rolled into Havasu City a few months ago, it was only 115... at 9pm it was still 107, and raining. Props to the hearty creatures that live there.
As far as having a jobber clearance my carriers, if its within reason I like to do stuff my self. Just a pride/ego thing prolly.
I know for a fact the machine shop can do it cheaper than what im willing to spend on the tooling. Im just not 100% I can get in there with a conventional end mill and have been looking for extended length keyway cutters that will get to the depth I need and then also side cut deep enough. My little mill is pretty dang pedestrian compared to a Bridgeport knee mill, or the like.
The dyno charts show very similar curves for both the touring and regular DR cams. Where the touring outshines the DR is at the very top of the rpm range, they carry peak power up a few ponies right at the top. I have a sportbike background and have most recently been riding a V65 Magna. I spent the first few rides on the Vic bouncing the poor thing off the rev limiter. LOL
